Morning: Conrad Ecklie

This morning’s name was Conrad Ecklie. From Wikipedia:

Conrad Ecklie is a fictional character on the television series CSI played by Marc Vann. He was employed as Assistant Director of the crime lab of Clark County, Nevada until he was promoted first to Undersheriff in Season 10, then to Sheriff of Clark County in Season 13. In earlier seasons, he is a typical antagonist. As the series progresses, he gradually starts to become a good friend to the CSI team.


On the actor, from Wikipedia:

Marc Vann (born August 23, 1954), is an American actor. He is known for his role as Conrad Ecklie in the CBS television series, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He also had notable roles in Angel and Early Edition.

And on the show:

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (referred to as CSI, also known as CSI: Las Vegas) is an American crime drama television series that premiered on CBS on October 6, 2000 [and is still running].

… The series follows Las Vegas criminalists (identified as “Crime Scene Investigators”) working for the Las Vegas Police Department (LVPD) (instead of real-life “Crime Scene Analysts” and “Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department” (LVMPD)) as they use physical evidence to solve murders. The series mixes deduction, gritty subject matter, and character-driven drama. The network later added spin-offs CSI: Miami and CSI: NY, both of which were canceled after ten and nine seasons respectively.

The core cast, in a posed group photo:

Sexy guys. Three of the male actors are regularly identified as sexy: Dourdan, Eads, Szmanda. (And for Eads and Szmanda, there’s even a vein of Nick/Greg slash fanfiction, linking them as gay lovers.)







Eads and Szmanda make a nice pairing because of their contrast in body type and projected persona: Eads is athletic, broad-shouldered, steamy, and seductively sexy; Szmanda is leaner, sweet, and “cute”. (And Dourdan is lean and intense.)
